Mother’s Day arrives on Sunday, May 13th this year and reflecting back, the traditional roots of Mother’s Day can be traced to the ancient Greeks and their annual spring festivals that were dedicated to maternal goddesses or the Mother of their gods. Around the 1600’s, Christians in England would hold festivities on the fourth Sunday of Lent in honor of the Virgin Mary.
Eventually this tradition gradually evolved to include all mothers and soon became known as Mothering Sunday. It wasn’t until 1872 that idea of officially celebrating Mother’s Day was suggested in the United States. An activist, writer and poet Julia Ward Howe, known for her Civil War song, “Battle Hymn of the Republic” steadfastly championed the cause and finally the the holiday was set to the second Monday in May.
Mother’s Day is now celebrated across the world in many countries and we at the Flower Gallery carry on this time honored tradition by offering you a wide variety of flowers in a pallet of vivid colors, soft pastels, live plants and expertly cut flower arrangements all designed for you to spoil the special women in your life with.
There are many gifts to choose from on Mother’s Day but the language of flowers is one that is easily recognized, widely spoken and appreciated by Mothers everywhere!
Whether it is your mom, grand mother, mother-in-law, sister, aunt, co-worker or a friend we warmly wish them and our moms a very special day filled with love and appreciation from all of our staff here at the Flower Gallery.
